Everyone loves a good water fight… don’t they!? Indeed, what makes a good water fight? Is it the soaking or the getting soaked? Which is more satisfying …the delivery of a deluge from a bucket full to the brim or expertly executing a close-quarter splash to the face?


Follow artist Pete Casby’s online videos, where he teaches you how to make your own super soakers using waste and materials that are easily to hand. You can follow the instructions exactly or use them as inspiration to manufacture your own hydro-ballistic weapon. The idea is to repurpose waste in order to make your water-war weaponry or machinery. You might have some old pipes lying around, a bicycle pump you don’t use or a bucket you can visualise as a high capacity component of some yet-to-be-built hydro-ballistic weapon. Bear in mind are that water should not be wasted, collect rain-water as much as possible. How far can your invention project water, and how accurately?
